east Tennessee here, and went couple days ago and some were green and others yellow. Actually most of the plants I found were very green to my surprise. It's suppose to rain tomorrow and get colder after that so that will really take it's toll i'm sure. Hope to get a few more in. Wanted to go really bad today, but just had to much to do. It's a long wait till next year,. May the ginseng gods be with you.
